    Pros

    Gratis every month.
    Worked around school schedule/vacations

    Cons

    Inconsistent with how they treated people--Associates and customers
    Associates would get yelled at when there was someone stealing product in the store, but were told not to approach thieves.
    Did not allow medical emergencies to be an excuse for missing or being late to work.

    Advice to Management

    Have managers review laws about employment, especially ADA and similar laws. Also have the same rules when it comes to all employees of the stores

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time

    Pros

    I loved doing all the visual merchandising. The company holds their visuals to high standards and it is very inspiring! I loved the merchandise and the Gratis! Especially when we would get free merchandise like bras, perfumes.

    Cons

    The managers were highly unprofessional and rude. Someone would call out everyday. They always had an attitude. I was scheduled until 2am on an overnight shift but we didn't leave the store until 4:30 am. They basically only like you as an employee if you can dedicate over 40 hours a week to them as a part time employee.

    Advice to Management

    learn how to talk to people and schedule properly.

    Pros

    I loved working at VS, my co workers, customers, and all training was amazing. We received fantastic deals, and product to use for personal testimonies. The company is smart and ever growing, it's a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The hours are retail hours, working nights and weekends aren't for me. They certainly compensate you for your time so finding something better has always been difficult, but work life balance was most important to me.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employee's! The most successful managers knew their employee's well and cared about them.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time

    Pros

    30% off discount off full priced items.

    Steady hourly pay

    Cons

    Competition from the girls on the sales floor makes for a stressful and catty environment

    Hours are given out based on how well the store performs so you could have very few hours if you work in a small town.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like we are idiots for not knowing an answer to a question that was never explained to us in the first place. Properly train us.
